Mr. Franklin has also been a featured speaker at the Nassau County Bar Association regarding contaminated real estate and at joint meetings of the Long Island Chapter of the Appraisal Institute and the Suffolk County Bar Association regarding the separation of business and real estate values and as a witness at a mock trial.
